This section explains how to configure the settings that the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) uses to interact with AWS. These include:
AWS requires that all incoming requests are cryptographically signed. The AWS CLI does this for you. The "signature" includes a date/time stamp. Therefore, you must ensure that your computer’s date and time are set correctly. If you don’t, and the date/time in the signature is too far off of the date/time recognized by the AWS service, AWS rejects the request.
